Tripchick Sorry, Scott, but I've only traveled in Israel and that was in 1987. I lived there for 3 monhs. But since you're not a young woman, my warnings would not apply to you in Israel anyway (you're lucky!).

Kate Hello, i am copping out a bit and doing a tour group for Egypt and Jordan but then I will head from Amman-Damascus-Beirut-Aleppo-Sanliurfa-Goreme-Istanbul. i want to spend more time in each city and do day trips from there. Still deciding whether to do a long day trip to Palmyra or stay overnight. What is yours like and can you let me know when you come back how everything went?

comehikewithmike Looks like scottooooo will be there the same time as you. I was there two years ago and it was really eye-opening. I love the culture in Egypt, and the tombs were mind-blowing. Especially the Valley of Kings and Queens.

overlander Make sure you get the hot air balloon over the "Valley". The sounds of the balloons firing up is insane. They had about 30 there at the same time. And about 20 people in each. The atmosphere was very memorable.

scottooooo Hey there giulia.I will be getting to Cairo on the 11 of September.I'm going to spend 4 or five days in Egypt and then head to Jordan next.I'm trying to figure out the Israel/Syria deal.Syria won't let you in if you have been to Israel,so maybe Syria after Jordan and then Israel.

giuliadventures But only 4/5 days in Egypt? Anyway, I'll skip the Egypt tour coz I've been there 4 times already/I'm officially going there for work! I know about some friends who went to Israel and got a visa on a separate piece of paper, not on the passport (I think it's something they do for tourists). It would be nice to get that if possibile! Anyway Im pretty sure Sep 10th is too early for me, I have to settle down in Cairo and everything. Sorry:(

giuliadventures no no no I don't work at the moment, lol. I will look for something when I'm there... usually I work in hotels where you work like 9 months a year then I travel. But this time I still don't know what I'm going to find and I'm super-curious:)))

Todd Hi guys, Someone else has posted a trip with *exactly* the same name and the same picture, but going at a different time. Maybe it's worth sharing ideas on itineraries. The other trip is here: http://globetrooper.com/cairo-to-istanbul-2011

Sebastian Graham Has anyone traveled along the crusade route? It's something I'd love to do, follow the crusaders from Europe to Jerusalem! Anyone have any experience or interest in this trip?

Todd Hey Sebastian. When we did Egypt last year we were considering to do a much larger trip with Geckos called Pharaohs, Crusaders & Kings. Unfortunately, time off work didn't allow for it. I think it would be a great cultural trip. Are you keen? Late 2011 maybe?
